I strongly advise to find an idea, you should put yourself in the place of the reader and ask yourself, do you have this idea of ​​information store in your mind that enables you to put forward a comprehensive article and renew it with related and interrelated sub-articles that include sub-links.

The points we will cover in this article:

What do you need to determine the niche of your blog?

The reasons why you should choose Niche for your blog are very clear eg:

1) It's hard to increase your blog's visitors and optimize it for search engines when you publish articles on different topics There are many different sites that do this, but they do it in a general framework commensurate with their capabilities and plan You probably won't be able to compete with them at least with a new blog

 2) General topics may not benefit you, and you may in particular attract visitors who are not interested in your blog content by mistake For example, if you choose a broad topic such as clothing, visitors may arrive at your blog who are interested in certain points that you do not fully address

On the other hand, if visitors browse your blog, they will not find the right content for them, which leads to them leaving and this leads to a bad bounce rate.

3) Choosing a niche for your blog will help you target a specific audience and thus accurately identify the topics you intend to write about, and this also will avoid wasting time writing articles or topics that no one is looking for, and your blog will not receive traffic through it

This is a completely different site than the sites that talk about anything and everything you deal with general and superficial points and don't go too deep into any of the areas you are talking about

4) Niche blogs have a higher chance of making high profits if we compare two blogs with the same number of visitors, but one blog talks about everything and the other blog only talks about diet recipes

5) Here the specialized blog can achieve a higher level of visitors and the amount of profits because the visitor here has a higher value because it is a targeted visitor for a certain type of business and products

Niche blogs also have a lot of options for earning from websites and one of these ways is affiliate marketing and making profit by renting banner ads.

Now let's take a look at the steps you can take to know how to define your blog idea:

Steps to defining an idea for a blog

Image title of the article Determining your blog idea Older in your hands Steps to identifying your blog idea in clear and simple steps Of course the result you will get may be different from the result that anyone else will get, because the steps that I will present here are a way to help you discover the blog niche that you think suits you personally

 But of course we will talk below about how to test the final idea in practice, which everyone can apply to see how feasible your blog is

 Now let's move on to the steps of choosing a niche for your blog, which are:

1) Review your interests

This may be something you've already done, but if you haven't, make a list of the topics that interest you most and that you know about.

Adding content to your blog is not always easy if you are not interested in a topic, you will find it difficult to find suitable content for your blog if you specialize in a field that you are not interested in.

The likelihood of giving up and not following increases exponentially - especially if this is your first blog.

Here are some questions that may help you determine your interests

- How do you spend your free time?

What hobby would you like to dedicate more time to?

What books do you read regularly?

What topics do you want to know more about?

Are you interested in a particular field?

2) What topics do you enjoy? What are the things you are interested in learning about?

You may be interested in a particular topic but do not enjoy doing it (if you find this sentence difficult to understand, you can be guided by the case of school students they are interested in their field of study, but most of the time they are not)

 So your blog should be about a topic that interests you and at the same time you have a passion for it and you love to write about it.

 

 You may find that you are interested in more than one topic and these topics are different and each has its own field, so what do you do? Do not worry, you will find the answer in front of you in the next step:

3) What are the areas that interest you and that will be the most important?Do you want to contribute it to other people?

Perhaps from the above, you will notice that the number of topics that you were thinking of has said that you will choose one of them to be the specialty of your blog, this is not enough .. Let's try to reduce the number again.

 And that is by researching a topic that you believe can be useful to a large number of people, for example, there are those who take it upon themselves to spread health awareness about a disease or correct misconceptions about any field.

 There are those who like to provide detailed reviews of electronic devices to help people interested in buying them make the decision to buy or not and there are those who go to the higher level, such as providing solutions to problems that face a certain group of people in any field.

 Now that you have done the above 3 steps, you will find that you have one or two ideas and the most important step is to do research on your blog before creating it to make sure that it has a demand and an audience or not

4) Put your blog idea to the test

This step is like a joker paper in the steps of defining an idea for an electronic blog, and here you have to put the idea you selected under the lens of a practical and scientific test

This step depends on the reality of the market, so you need to give it enough importance. The most important points will enable you to know if your blog idea is possible:

 1) Use keyword research tools

 There are many tools that enable you to know the rate of search results for any keyword that you enter in these tools, and among these tools is the most important Google Keyword Planner, through which you can enter the most important words that express your field to see if someone is searching for it.

 

The higher the search rate, this is an indication that there is a large audience interested in what you will be presenting on your blog

 2) Search social media

Social media is a very important indicator for understanding the needs of your audience and what they are interested in. By searching for pages and groups on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, you can access pages and groups that deal with the topic that you have decided to choose for your blog.

 3) Find blogs specialized in your field

Of course, every field has blogs that it belongs to, and here it is your turn to identify the most famous of these blogs that have the same domain as your blog.

Read these blogs and find out how many people they read and how many people they reach This will give you a good idea of ​​what your audience is, so that you can plan your marketing strategy accordingly

 Now that you have an audience that is interested in what your blog has to offer, it's time to start blogging

5) Decide how to make money from your blog

It is the last step before you start creating a blog, which is very important in fact, choose the method of profit from the blog.

It is the most important element in determining the way the blog works, its design and the nature of the content that will be published in this blog

 Here are some facts about it:

 There are templates for blogs that use Google Adsense

Blog posts that make money from affiliate companies (Amazon) should have more content than blog posts that make money from ads.

Blog sites that earn from Adsense ads must have a large number of articles to attract more visitors to make a good profit.

There are a lot of criteria and conditions that you must follow when taking advantage of the suggestions of large advertising companies such as Google Adsense

 

To make a good profit from Adsense, you must get a large number of visitors and this is done by choosing a solid web hosting plan for your site.

In the next part of the article we will discuss a set of important tips and recommendations that will help you and that you should follow after creating your blog in order to help you build a successful blog that you can benefit from.

Tips and recommendations of interest to every owner of an electronic blog.

1) Study your competition

The competition is not necessarily bad It may already seem to you that you have found a profitable niche, but you need to do a thorough analysis of the competing sites Create a spreadsheet and get to work recording the statistics of all the competing sites you can find

 By studying competitor data, you can learn about the competitive opportunities available to you to differentiate them and by studying competitors.

You can find more keywords you need to write about

 

 It should be noted here that we are not talking about studying competitors to imitate them or steal ideas from them, but the goal is to study competitors as a way to expand horizons, integrate ideas and discover new ways of excellence and creativity.

2) Continuously and massively add high-value content

Of course, by adding content, we do not mean that you add many articles and that the matter is over, but we mean adding many articles almost daily, as well as continuing to do so without stopping.

 This is useful for your blog to improve its visibility in the search engine and give it more professionalism for your blog.

 Dear reader, stand with me and consider the following two examples:

First example: A visitor found your blog by chance and found that it specializes in a field he is interested in, but he noticed that your blog has few articles, which led him to leave the blog without adding it to his favourites.

 What did you conclude: When a visitor to your comprehensive blog finds your articles in abundance, the likelihood of him staying on your blog will increase, and so will the likelihood of adding them to his existing sites.Fadl because he saw that your blog is enough to satisfy his interest.

 Of course the visitor will not read all the articles on your blog at once, but he will take a general idea of ​​the niche and quality of your blog and decide to add it to his favorites and visit it frequently

 Example 2: A visitor starts visiting your blog on a daily basis, but finds that the last article you wrote was a month ago. The first thing he will think of is that you stopped writing on the blog.

Thus, you will find that this visitor will leave it in search of another blog that satisfies his interest. I know that returning it again will take a long time and a lot of effort and rely on marketing tools such as email marketing.

 What I concluded: Adding constantly renewed content to your blog is essential in order to maintain visitors and bring in new visitors.

 Keeping up to date is an important component in some fields, such as technical, news, and economic fields, these disciplines change dramatically and new information becomes outdated after a few days and a head start on writing a new article can bring you a huge number of visitors and even more visitors to your entire blog.

 3) Market the blog to increase traffic

Now that you've added fresh and diverse content to your blog, keep it updated regularly, and already get traffic, what's your next step?

 If you ask any small or big blogger what they would like for their blog, the answer will be the same for everyone:

 The increase in the number of visitors, thus increasing the chance of success for your blog, as well as increasing profits.

Which means more money from ads, affiliate marketing offers, or the potential to get a full sponsorship of your blog in exchange for writing specific content.

Accordingly, the owner of the blog should not be satisfied with visitors to his blog and aspire to increase, and he can achieve this through various sources, and I will mention the most important of them:

1) Optimizing the blog for search engines | Search EngineOptimization

 Always configure your blog to be search engine friendly by following industry-specific guidelines and Google's preferred safe strategies such as:

Focus your blog on keywords that are relevant to your focus Make sure you have internal links for your blog and social media profiles You should also publish authoritative content for your blog site

 2) Social media marketing

It is a website or application that allows you to share information and images with your friends, family, and other people. You can also follow your favorite celebrities or companies on social media.

Social media is the easiest and almost free way to get visitors to your blog You can always count on paid ads for social media platforms, but this is an approach we don't recommend starting with if you have a blog and want to increase traffic.

You should consider subscribing and using social media as a way to get people to visit your site

Social media is a way to reach a large number of people for free. It is effective because it reaches a large number of people

You must have a blog that allows you to share your topics on social media platforms

3) Youtube

 If you have a YouTube channel, use it to promote your blog and send visitors to it

The idea is simple but it worked. If your blog is interested in the technical field, you can create a media such as a video explaining how to install complex software on Windows

You will need nothing more than a simple program to capture your computer screen, this is a versatility in the way you present the content that your blog specializes in, and is useful for topics that are difficult to explain through readable text

In the description of the video you added on YouTube, include a link to your blog. If the link is for your blog's homepage, that will be fine; If it is related to the content of the video itself, that would be great

4) Check your blog performance (Is your blog visitors increasing or decreasing?)

Now that you are done with all the previous points, it is time to preview the assessment and analysis through a site analysis tool such as Google Analytics or the Webmaster Dashboard.

Measure the development of your blog over the three months since it was created and officially launched for your target audience

 And ask yourself these questions:

Was my blog successful?

- What are the reasons for the development or decline?

- What is the solution to maintain this development or to prevent deterioration?

There is another case besides development and regression: it is stability, which in itself is regression. It is assumed that the requirements for the presence of your blog for a long time on the Internet is the continuity of its development.

 I think I have answered these questions and based on the number of visitors, bounce rate, etc. I have come to two conclusions: What is the solution?

 First: How do you handle the decline?

 You often lose visitors to your blog because you neglected to pay attention to the speed of your blog, you put many ads on your blog, which reduces the number of visitors, I stopped writing for a while, which reduced the number of visitors

And between maintaining and losing visitors is a direct relationship, the longer your blog slows down, the more visitors you lose, and so on

 If you have difficulty with this process, you can always consult a friend or expert, even if it is for a fee. This is an investment and what you spend today will be returned to you twice as much tomorrow.

 Second: How do you maintain the rate of progress of your blog

 Have you checked your blog traffic stats and found that it is on the rise? I found your blog is getting more and more successful..excellent keep doing what you are doing

And find new ways to reach new visitors and keep existing visitors, whether by offering featured content or updating existing content.

 Most of the means to success is often based on repeating what you have done and found suitable for your blog, renewal is required of course but within limits and without giving up the methods that led you to current success

 Finally

explainedIn this article, you will learn how to define an idea or specialization for a blog easily and in practical and organized steps. You may think that the owners of large websites use different methods, and this is of course possible.

If you don't follow the steps in this article, your blog will be different than it should be.

As for the other points that we touched upon in this article, such as the sources of visitors and the evaluation of the performance of the blog, they are points that everyone agrees on because its first and last goal is to increase the number of visitors (which is common to everyone).
